Jill Knox is a mixed-media artist who draws inspiration from language and texture. Working with yarn and acrylic paint, she has created a body of work that merges pop art and communication.
The collection entitled You Got Me Through, will track Jill’s year-long journey from the death of her son to the arrival of her daughter. This first piece: The Unreal. TheFever Dream. The Imaginings in My Head is a reflection of the first stages of grief, as she experienced them.
Jill graduated magna cum laude from NYU, studying theater history and sociology, and holds an MFA in theater arts from Brown University. She began her visual art practice shortly after graduating from Brown when, for her, performance fell short of artistic fulfillment. Having grown up in a house of art people (museum chairs and board members, buyers and collectors) her training was through osmosis. Jill was born in New York City and currently resides in Pasadena, CA.
